Top Tips on How To Build A Capsule Wardrobe.

We have all heard the term capsule wardrobe but what is the reasoning behind it? Surely if you love clothes and fashion the idea is to have as much as possible right? Well this is not really the point, Fashion is all about wearing clothes and sometimes we end up with
pieces that sit in the wardrobe for years unworn only to be dropped off finally at a charity shop for someone else to buy.

Getting a capsule wardrobe together means that you actually wear your clothes, are never short of the right outfit for any occasion and
eliminates the stress from your life where sartorial choices are concerned. So let’s have a look at the sort of pieces you need in your capsule wardrobe for the Spring months ahead.

1. Decide on your base pieces.  These are the pieces that will make up your outfits such as tops, trousers, skirts etc. Depending on your life style they will incorporate different pieces such as for work and casual, working out etc.

These pieces will form the basis of your working wardrobe, the items that you can draw on day-to-day. They might include a pair of jeans, basic t- shirts, a basic white shirt, the sort of items that you will wear throughout the year on a day-to-day basis.
